Reveal CommentJosé Sousa bt Belal Bareets (Sep 3) 7-5, 5-0 Belal Bareets Retired

Player Comments:

  • "My first game in this league and I knew I was facing the opponent that had won it a few times before. I won the neighbouring league a few times, despite that the pitch at Oxhey playing fields had lot of dinks in court 1 which I didn’t know. The unexpected pre match rain made it very slippery and didn’t seem to dry at all. For some reason no scooter was allowed in the car park.. nevertheless I made a storming start with 3-0 and 5-2 up and then took it lightly for him to come back and win the set huge mistake. That really got into my head. Second set Jose’s game further improved and had a few net calls his way. To top my miserable day off an ankle injury made me struggle at 3-0. I hope we meet in much better circumstances next time." -- Bela
